    I hate coming here and just asking questions when I have a chicken issue, for that I apologize



    one of my 2 hens for the last 2 days has been puffed up and lethargic

    I brought her in and noticed her eyes closing for a few seconds here and there

    i know this isn't a good sign from a few other experiences

    she did lay an egg a few hours ago

    i isolated her and she is drinking water but has left a small amount of yellow droppings

    yogurt from what i read may be good for her but all i have is the yogurt on top fruit on the bottom type, is just the plain yogurt on the top ok to give?

    since isolating her she isn't closing her eyes as much

    I also have duramycin would that help at all?

    maybe I should leave her be until morning,

    just worried

    thanks!
